"Here is a sweet, fragrant mouth to kiss; here are two more feet to make music with their pattering about my nursery. Here is a soul to train for God; and the body in which it dwells is worth all it will cost, since it is the abode of a kingly tenant. I may see less of friends, but I have gained one dearer than them all, to whom, while I minister in Christ's name, I make a willing sacrifice of what little leisure for my own recreation my other darlings had left me. Yes, my precious baby, you are welcome to your mother's heart, welcome to her time, her strength, her health, her tenderest cares, to her lifelong prayers! Oh, how rich I am, how truly, how wondrously blest!”
Happy 23 weeks my little ninja.
My body is quite tired but I am so happy and grateful
for our time together, even it is at 3 in the morning (;
I love you so very very much
and I am so thrilled that you are growing stronger
and stronger each day and your sweet kicks,
karate chops, and butt wiggles are testimony to that.
So keep on perfecting your ninja skills my dear little one,
we can't wait to see them outside of my stomach (:
